MyNBA2K17, the companion app for NBA 2K17, is now available for iOS and Android devices.

This app lets players scan their faces into NBA 2K17 from a mobile device, allowing armchair athletes to put their own personal touch on their custom basketball stars.

MyNBA2K17 gives players the chance to win Virtual Currency, which can be used to buy console items on the MyPLAYER Store.

Players can collect NBA player cards and legends, which can be bought and sold on the Auction house. Cards can also be used in competitions like Quick Games, Season Tournaments, the Blacktop Challenge, and in-game special events like Rivals Clash and Road to the Championship. There are over 300 new cards available. Players can also take part in Pick and Win mini-games using live NBA game stats.

The app also allows players to watch 2KTV from the mobile device of their choice.

MyNBA2K17 is free to download, but there are in-app purchases.
